Stopped by Nathan Krestul Park on my way home home from work, drawn today by a collection of White Ibis high in a tree.  Saw the Belted Kingfisher dive, but come up empty-beaked.  A Little Blue Heron and a Tricolored Heron were out again, the Tricolored Heron the more testy of the pair.  The Red-winged Blackbirds were making their usual calls:  rah RAAH rah!

These birds were too far away for me to identify them until I got home and downloaded my pictures–but how delighted I was to have spotted three in a single tree!

Lots of pretty bird calls and fleeting glimpses of tiny birds, including this one:
